116. The Truth Will Out

Aired January 18, 1986

Rose is afraid of having a difficult conversation about money when her daughter Kristen comes to town.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: Well, I lied to Stan. I used to tell him how great he was in bed. It was really very difficult, but fortunately, I only had to tell him on his birthday.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Are you two coming? The spaghetti is getting cold!
Rose: We'll be there in a minute. We're in the middle of a makeup lesson.
Sophia: I hope the kid can help you. You wear more rouge than Miss Piggy!

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: Wait until you see what I bought. I found the most stunning silk dress, an incredibly revealing lace nightie, and look, these just adorable sequined socks.
Dorothy: Sequined socks.
Blanche: I think they kind of make a personal statement.
Sophia: Yeah, this end up.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: Dorothy, listen. Before Rose gets here, can I ask you something?
Dorothy: Sure.
Blanche: You don't have to answer if you don't want to.
Dorothy: What is it?
Blanche: If you think it's none of my business, say, "It's none of your business!"
Dorothy: Oh, look, Blanche, you caught me one night sneaking out of the kitchen naked with an Oreo in my mouth. We have no secrets. Now ask your damn question.
Blanche: Have you noticed that Rose has been acting peculiar?
Dorothy: Yes, Blanche, from the first day I met her.

Quote from Blanche

Charley: And while we're down here, I'm gonna go to astronaut camp.
Blanche: Astronaut camp? There's a camp for astronauts? Is it close by?
Dorothy: Down, Blanche.
Kirsten: It's a special program for young people.
Rose: Isn't that something? My granddaughter wants to be an astronaut!
Charley: Not really, Grandma. I just want to meet boys who want to be astronauts.
Blanche: Me too!

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: Honey, you didn't eat your Brussels sprouts.
Charley: I don't like Brussels sprouts.
Sophia: Neither do I. [opens purse] Put them in here with mine.

Quote from Blanche

Rose: What's the biggest lie you've ever told?
Blanche: I once told my sister Charmaine that she was left on our doorstep by gypsies.
Dorothy: What?
Rose: Well, Blanche, why would you want to do a thing like that?
Blanche: She annoyed me. Always mouthing off about how her hair was curlier than mine, her complexion was prettier than mine. I finally said there was good reason for it, she was left by gypsies! I had her completely convinced!
Rose: What did she say when you told her the truth?
Blanche: Oh, I never did. I even tried to help her find her little old gypsy mama.

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: My God! It's worse than I thought. Why, this is more baffling than the Paxton Osgood case. First, Rose had to lie about the money, and now she's hiding some deep, dark secret about Charlie.
Dorothy: Well, Blanche, whatever it is, it is none of our business. Come on, Ma. Let's go to bed.
Blanche: No, of course it's our business. We're friends, we're roommates. I have no secrets from you. My whole life is an open book.
Sophia: Your whole life is an open blouse.

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: Morning.
Rose: Oh, here, taste this.
Dorothy: What is it?
Rose: Oh, it's my special maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, molasses, Rice Krispies log.
Dorothy: How practical. A snack you can panel your den with.
Rose: Some people put flour in it, but I think that makes it too heavy. My kids always liked it this way.
Dorothy: Tell me, Rose, do any of your kids still have their own teeth?

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: Dorothy, just look at this man. He is obviously guilty as sin. I don't even know why they bother with a trial.
Rose: What trial?
Blanche: Oh, the Duncan Osgood trial. That big society murder over in Palm Beach?
Rose: What makes you so sure he's guilty?
Blanche: His wife was found at the bottom of their private lake clutching his dickey in her hand.
Dorothy: Well, that would certainly place him at the scene of the crime.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Look at this. I'm a walking time bomb. 230/190. Stand back, I could blow any minute.
Dorothy: Ma, you know that machine is not working.
Sophia: We shouldn't take any chances. I can't be moved. Somebody else will have to give up their room for Rose's family.
Dorothy: You're fine. You're staying with me. You always complain and we always get through it.
Sophia: All right, fine. But I'm begging you, while we're sleeping together, please lay off the broccoli at dinner, huh?

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Oh, boy, I'd love to put some surprises in my will. Like leaving a small remembrance to each of the men who has brought some special joy or pleasure to my life.
Dorothy: And where would they read that will, Blanche? The Astrodome?
Blanche: Or maybe I'll just do something like, "To my sister Virginia, I hereby bequeath my diamond brooch, my collection of Wedgwood china, and all my stock in AT&T."
Dorothy: You have stock in AT&T?
Blanche: I don't have any of those things, but for one brief moment, Virginia would think she'd hit the jackpot.

Quote from Dorothy

Kirsten: Do you wanna give Blanche and Dorothy the presents we brought for them?
Charley: Sure, Mom.
Dorothy: Oh, you didn't have to do that.
Kirsten: Hope you like it. It's very popular in Minnesota. It's a maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, molasses, Rice Krispie log! One for each of you.
Dorothy: How sweet. How incredibly sweet.

Quote from Sophia

Kirsten: Mom, dinner was delicious.
Blanche: Oh, it certainly was. You must have spent all day in that kitchen.
Rose: Oh, no. It's a simple recipe. You just take some mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables and ground lamb and throw them all together. Where we come from, it's called Shepherd's Pie.
Rose: Where I come from, it's called garbage.

Quote from Blanche

Dorothy: Rose, dinner was wonderful, it truly was!
Rose: Thanks. It was my husband's favorite. Charlie used to ask for it at least once a week.
Blanche: You know, I don't believe George ever requested anything special from me. At least not in the kitchen.
No, that's not entirely true. Once on our anniversary or was it on payday? Anyway, I remember a butcher block table was involved...
Dorothy: Blanche.

Quote from Rose

Radio: "Please join us when we return to the air at 6 a.m. We now conclude our broadcast day with the Blue Angels Squadron accompanied by our national anthem." [Rose stands as the anthem plays]
Dorothy: At ease, Rose. Come on, honey, why don't you get some sleep?

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Oh, Rose. What are you talking about? Is this about Kirsten?
Rose: Oh, Kirsten wouldn't lie. I raised her better than that. Except for a little white lie, but that doesn't really count.
Sophia: Oh, yes, it does! A lie is a lie, which is a sin, which sends you straight to hell! Who told a lie?
Blanche: Oh, who hasn't?
Sophia: Me. I never lie.
Dorothy: Ma, how much did you lose at the dog track last week?
Sophia: None of your business, and that's the truth.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: That's it! I'm out of here!
Dorothy: Ma, what's the matter?
Sophia: I can't sleep! All night long, tossing and turning! I'd get more rest on Space Mountain!
Dorothy: I'm sorry, Ma. I can't help it.
Sophia: I could live with the tossing and turning. Your cold feet are what's driving me crazy! It's like having two size-nine Fudgesicles pressed up against my butt.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: Ma, will you knock it off? I have to get back to sleep.
Rose: Oh, good. I'm so glad you're awake!
Sophia: I'm so glad you're awake! I'm taking my bed back!
Dorothy: Fine! Rose, get into bed. Ma, get out of here, and take your teeth with you!
Sophia: Don't make fun of your mother. If I didn't wake up tomorrow, you'd never forgive yourself!
Dorothy: I'll risk it!

Quote from Dorothy

Rose: Dorothy, do you feel like talking?
Dorothy: Oh, honey, if it can wait until morning, I'd really appreciate it. I'm exhausted.
Rose: Sure. I am too. Let's just get some sleep. Dorothy, you're sleeping with a liar.
Dorothy: Don't worry about it, Rose. Most of the people I've slept with were liars. Good night.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: So that's it. That's the big secret. Charlie was a nice guy!
Dorothy: Oh, I'm sorry it lacked the intrigue of the Duncan Osgood case.
Blanche: But isn't it amazing how things always work out? Now, Rose and her daughter have reconciled their differences and Duncan Osgood can walk the streets a free man. I guess all's well that ends well.
Dorothy: That's easy for you to say. You're not at the bottom of a lake, clutching someone's dickey.
